In new research published in Cell, Assistant Professor Ahmad ‘Mo’ Khalil, graduate student Minhee Park and colleagues engineered a fully synthetic epigenetic system to better understand, study, and control its behaviors. Using synthetic biology, they constructed molecular modules that mimic features of natural epigenetic systems and found that they were able to induce epigenetic activities in mammalian cells, such as storing cellular memory.
Their research proposal has three specific aims, but overall plans to deliver a systematic understanding of the effects of a non-invasive brain stimulation technique, ultrasound neuromodulation.
Professor Muhammad Zaman and his team at Boston University are partnering with Merck Global Health to further develop PharmaChk, a user-friendly, portable device for testing drugs of questionable quality.
Professor Christopher Chen has been selected to receive the 2019 Robert A. Pritzker Distinguished Lecture Award, the Biomedical Engineering Society’s premier recognition for outstanding achievements and leadership in the science and practice of biomedical engineering.
Professor Xin Zhang (ME, ECE, BME, MSE) is an expert in the field of metamaterials and recently her lab has developed two new structures that can manipulate sound and electromagnetic waves. Although they are different, both offer two forms of wave control in their own spectrums, performance yet seen in other devices.
